          Comments about Murad Travel Size Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

          I was skeptical because I have tried so many products that did nothing. My girlfriend suggested this because it worked for her, so when I saw the travel size I thought I would give it a try. I have to say it works!! I have malazma that drives me nuts and makes me self conscious. And although it didn't go away completely, I definitely saw a noticeable difference after this trial size. I will definitely keep using.

                    Comments about Murad Travel Size Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum:

                    I have tried a lot of over-the-counter products to lighten my moderate sun spots. None of them made a noticeable difference. I've heard good things about the Murad brand so I thought I would try a travel-size bottle. I think the difference is this has 2% hydroquinone rather than 1% like the others. I've used it at night for about 3-4 weeks and my spots are definitely lighter. I wish I had taken before and after pictures. This stuff smells like wart remover, but I have somewhat sensitive skin and it's caused no breakouts or rash. I don't think it will completely fade my spots but they are a lot easier to hide under concealer and foundation so I am VERY happy. This small bottle goes a very long way if you just use it on the spot areas.

                    This is the first product that I've tried that works on lightening dark sun damaged spots. I am a former sun worshiper (sans sun screen) and as I approached 40 I was really seeing the damage on the skin of my face. The spots have significantly lightened and most are almost gone! The product is a bit expensive but worth it because it actually works!

                        If you have sensitive skin I would recommend continuing on with your acne regimen until the break outs have calmed down. Then moving into a more pigment lightening regimen.
